Barcelona To Decide In January Whether To Remodel Camp Nou Or Build New Stadium
Published December 11, 2013
HOW BIG? In London, Pete Jenson reported "the new Camp Nou will be third in terms of capacity" behind two stadia: "the Rungrado May Day stadium in North Korea, which holds 150,000, and the Saltlake Stadium" in Calcutta, which holds 120,000 (DAILY MAIL, 12/9). The EFE reported Barcelona Economic VP Javier Faus said that remodeling Camp Nou would require an investment of €300M ($413M), while building a new stadium would cost more than €600M ($826M). Faus explained that a "small-scale renovation has been ruled out, and warned that a remodeling of the stadium is very complex and would be the most inconvenient for members," as this would force Camp Nou to lose 12,000 seats at the "most critical moment" (EFE, 12/10).
